Childhood Dream Fulfilled

Go for Gold!

Go for Gold!

Sports commentators hailed Kamil Stoch’s jumps, where he won his first (of two) Olympic gold medals, outstanding. He left the competition far behind. For the ski jumper himself, the medals in Sochi were not only a massive success, but also the fulfilment of a childhood dream. This is confirmed by a video that has gone viral on YouTube where a twelve-year-old Kamil says, “I would like to take part in the Olympics, win a gold medal, but for now I still have some time.” Olympic gold winner Stoch has not forgotten those words because soon after receiving the gold medal he thanked not only his nearest and dearest but also the coaches who worked with him from the very start of his career. And there were quite a few because Kamil started skiing as early as the age of three. One year later he was jumping off small hills with his friends. He began regular training at his club LKS Ząb at the age of eight.
